  • How does the booking process work? Are there any top tips?

The booking site can only be accessed by a limited number of people at once. This means you may find yourself on the holding page waiting to access the booking site. It will automatically refresh to look for space on the booking page every 20 seconds.

If you are booking for other people, take care to enter their details correctly - names cannot be changed once you proceed with your booking.

Once you reach the payment page you will have 5 minutes to submit your payment information, so take your time to make sure you enter information accurately. A timer will show how long you have.

If the page ‘hangs’ and you can’t get any further, press 'back' once and then continue your booking from that point. Don’t refresh the page more than 10 minutes after entering your details as your access to the page will have expired. If this happens you will need to close the browser and start again to gain fresh access to the booking page.

  • Is there anything else to look out for?

Do not buy tickets from anywhere other than the official site at glastonbury.seetickets.com.
